We are now accepting independent filmmaker submissions of feature length films (minimum of 55 minutes) in any genre. All films participate in generous revenue share and are eligible to compete for our annual Jury Awards and/or Audience Awards with cash prizes. *Short films may be submitted for TVOD as part of a grouped package or as part of SVOD channel.

Films are streamed on our site and apps, any may be removed at the filmmaker’s request at any time, however this may affect your eligibility for awards and prizes.

Filmmakers are encouraged to sell any tie-in additional related products including DVDs and merchandise to leverage interest in their film.
